We are celebrating my mom's 70th birthday in Charleston the first weekend in May. We all love to eat, especially seafood, especially rustic spots ala Maine lobster shacks. A few questions:
1. Best seafood places? We'll have a car and love getting off the beaten track.
2. In which area/hotel/inn should we stay to have the best access to good food and a unique Charleston experience? Do we need to be in the historic district? Is that the same as the Market district? (Is it noisy and touristy, or charming?) Or is there a Band B with delicious breakfasts?
3. Do SNOB or Hominy Grill take reservations?
3. We have four days in Charleston. Should we drive to Savannah for a day trip ? How long does it take? From the posts it doesn’t seem particularly chowish. Is there a detour to get some good bar-b-que?
Thanks so much in advance! We can't wait to get out of this gray, damp New England spring!
